River Sweep

WAVE’s 12th Annual River Sweep

Saturday, June 10th, 2023, 9am – 11:30am

Join us on Saturday, June 10th, 2023 for WAVE Foundation’s 12th Annual River Sweep. We will once again partner with ORSANCO (Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission) to bring awareness to local water conservation by cleaning up the banks of the Ohio River!


At last year’s River Sweep, WAVE Staff and Volunteers, including Newport Aquarium Staff, and a few Cincinnati Bengals, spent a few hours to clean up the Ohio River banks. Over 70 people filled 35 huge bags of trash and we hope to have the same success in 2023!

Can’t make it to WAVE Foundation’s River Sweep? You can still make a difference. ORSANCO’s Ohio River Sweep used to be a one day event, Ohio River Sweep has now changed to a full season. The goal is to support clean up events from March through October to remove the greatest amount of litter possible, thus having a larger collective impact than a one day event could previously offer. Participants choose the date and location of their cleanup and the Ohio River Sweep provides support and supplies to hold the event. Find an event to join or organize your own River Sweep!
